Keynote: How to reach the ‘post-pandemic’ Workday Consumer

Mareike Zöllner

10:00 - 10:35

Not so long ago, from Monday through Friday, many consumers went to offices where they engaged in their “work-life” activities. When they went home, they spent time immersed in their “personal life” activities. But then the pandemic accelerated a trend that had already started; a life where personal and work are intertwined. Meet the Workday Consumer!

In November 2021 Microsoft enlisted the help of Forrester Consulting to undertake global research that evaluates these changing consumer behaviours and brands’ readiness to adapt their online marketing and advertising strategies.

At Friends of Search, Microsoft will present these findings and you will discover the best strategies to reach this new consumer persona.
